HPI Seed Fund invests in Auratikum

The Auratikum SaaS application enables researchers to gain scientific insight through a structured and repeatable process. Inspired by Niklas Luhmann's famous Zettelkasten Method, Auratikum supports researchers in the entire process of scientific research - from the initial thought to the finished work. Now it has recently been added to the portfolio of the HPI Seed Fund.  

"Without writing, you can't think: at least not in a sophisticated, connectable way."  (Niklas Luhmann)  

With this mantra in mind, the founding team, consisting of Björn Wagner, David Eickhoff (both software developer) and Richard Ottinger (humanities doctoral student), has been developing a market-ready software solution that makes scientific work easier for both students and doctoral students of all disciplines.  Auratikum stands for collection of ideas, literature management, work structuring and writing process in one place and without any training. This simplicity means that the SaaS tool does not require unnecessary further training, long forum entries or cumbersome Youtube tutorials and thus defies overloaded and confusing programs such as Citavi.  

The entrepreneurs are currently focusing on publishing a complete redesign with extensive functional enhancements, as well as their expansion into English-speaking foreign countries which is made possible through the HPI Seed Fund.
